| Hollywood's strange view of Britain at war
I was unaware of this film till I found it on youtube.Initially I viewed it because of my interest in Veronica Lake.However I became more interested by the strange view of Britain at war.As an alien from an enemy country Lake would have been interned.Tone as an objector would probably have been asked to serve as a non combatant,eg a medic.There were no spy rings in Britain. Lake is miscast as a refugee and I would agree that this marks the beginning of her decline both personally and professionally.
